The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.984 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 19%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, the government is avowedly atheist, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 1st in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 472nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 126 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
